I'm getting ready to start a series of monthly teachings on the basic beliefs of Buddhism -- and how to integrate them into your meditation practice. For those who are curious about this, I want to offer a series of teachings and guided meditations on Insight Timer, starting with the Four Noble Truths. You'll find times, dates, and links to register (for free) to attend!
Want to get links to those workshops and any other teachings I do on Buddhist teachings? Just fill out the form below and you'll stay in the loop (with no spam or inbox clutter).

Buddhism is all about identifying suffering so that we can end it. In this 30 minute teaching, you'll learn how the Buddha diagnosed the root cause of human suffering: ignorance. We misunderstand the type of beings are and the world around us -- but we can wake up to reality through practice!
According to Buddhism, the root of suffering is misunderstanding our true nature and that of the world around us, and part of that is not noticing that everything changes -- our minds, our bodies, our friends, our planet. We'll sit together and notice the dynamic flow of reality.
This teaching in a way is the key to the entire dharma: we can finally, fully, once and for all wake up out of the misunderstandings of the world that keep us on the wheel of samsara (birth and death). We'll talk about what that means, what different schools say about it, and how it applies to life.
